From many of my own healing crises and thousands of Rolfing clients, as well along with clients in other settings, I can say that no matter how intense a healing crisis is, it will pass. If you or any friend of yours has any concern about what is occurring, seek medical advice.
As strange as this may sound, enjoy the healing crisis as much as you can. It is your gift to your body to help it get well. Avoid turning from one who thinks all this is New Age hyperbole to the fanatic on a constant cycle of purging him- or herself. Allow your body to travel its own path; your job is to support it.
Your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. Deep within, it knows how to do its job to breakup of what is preventing that natural process of healing, and then support it once it starts. As a Rolfer, I don’t see myself as a healer, I see myself as the instigator who stirs up things so you and your Creator can do the healing. This healing energy is what will renew your body and keep you young.
The process of experiencing a healing crisis becomes a process of where you begin to see yourself being in a defining moment – where on some level you are committing to a new depth of wellness. The crisis evolves to be portal where you step through to a new place of health. Once on the other side, not only are you different, you do not want to go back.
I strongly encourage you to speak to your Rolfer about your feelings and experiences; he or she can be a great resource. Use this blog as an adjunct resource to assist you in your Rolfing and healing journey. I wish you the best on this journey.
